Leadership Council Chairman calls on militias to learn September lessons, abandon unviable project

Chairman of the Presidential Leadership Council, Dr. Rashad Mohammed Al-Alimi, has reiterated
the council
and government’s commitment to the option of a just peace that reflects the Yemeni people’s open
perspective towards all the national stakeholders, away from sectarianism, the (divine) selection
theory, discrimination, exclusion and marginalization, and the rejection of any projects that
conflict with the nation’s interests and the future of their successive generations.

The presidential remarks came in an address on the occasion of the nation’s celebration of the 61st
anniversary of the September 26 Revolution, the 60th anniversary of the October Fourteenth Revolution,

and the 56th anniversary of the Independence Day, November 30.
The Chairman of the Presidential Leadership Council called on the Houthi militia to exercise reason,
respond to peace mediation efforts, and to not put
the interests of their leaders and supporters over the interests of the Yemeni people.

The President urged the Houthi militia to submit to the popular will to build a state
based on internal partnership, good neighborliness, and active and constructive
engagement with its Gulf and Arab surrounding, in order to serve the Yemeni people
and their economic, political and social interests.

The Chairman of the Presidential Leadership Council renewed the call to the Yemeni
people in Houthi-controlled regions to reject the Imamite theocratic project and
those who believe in it, regardless of its roots and origins.

He also repeated the warning to all interest groups and stakeholders that the rogue
Houthi militias are trying to portray themselves as defending them, and are using the
siege mentality logic in a blatant deception and fallacious distortion of our tolerant
history and cultural, social, and human heritage.

He said, Those who are still deceived by the slogans of these militias must remember
the sacrifices of our great leaders and the suffering of our people; liberate their will;
not fall to superstition and enslavement tricks; and declare their frank position alongside
the values of the state and equal citizenship.

He warned against continuing to deal with the practices of these militias with a kind

and media elites, because history will record these positions and will favor
only the brave today and tomorrow.

He stressed that the battle that our people are waging today is not a civil, regional,
or international war, but rather a battle between the Imamate and the Republic, between
freedom and slavery, between those who claim the divine right to rule the Yemenis,
and those to advocate broad national partnership.
